Baumard's signature wine, named after the butterfly shape of the vineyard, is pure, exotic Chenin Blanc, rich, but not losing sight of the essential minerality of Savennières, its stony element coming through in the tight texture. This should certainly age—drink now, or wait for five years. Screwcap.
